On the spur of the moment my wife and I and 2 teenage kids decided it might be fun to rent some bikes. The hire place was right outside the Castlebay Hotel where we were staying so we thought we’d give it a go. Tony...More

We were in Barra for a few days and decided last minute to hire bikes to cycle around. Bikes were good quality and functioned well. Given how short notice it was there was excellent availability too. Bikes in the background of my photo ;-)

We booked three bikes for a cycle around Barra, two electric bikes and a standard. All bikes were impeccably maintained and new. Tony who runs the place, could not be more helpful or nicer. Trust noone else with your cycle needs.

Yes, you can! There's a £30 surcharge per bike for that though.
